Ross J. Aviation tools to improve patient safety. J Perianesth Nurs. 2014; 29: 508-510
The aviation industry offers insights and tools applicable to error reduction efforts in health care. This commentary presents how three aviation-based strategies—crew resource management, simulation training, and black boxes—have been utilized to improve patient safety.
